Origami: the Japanese art of paper folding

Origami is a Japanese word which literally means to fold paper. Microsoft has chosen Origami as the code name for its Ultra-Mobile PC project. Most commercials tout the Microsoft Origami as a paperback PC designed to replace the text book. Its no surprise to see the similarities between the name Origami and the Microsoft UMPC which was recently launched. With English names becoming increasingly difficult to find for new projects and ventures, startups and technology firms have turned to foreign language as a substitute.
